LIMERICKS 37 38 & 39


An eccentric old sailor from Hyde

had a tub with sea water inside.

When he was asked why

it was not filled up high

he explained ‘I’ve left room for the tide!’




There was an old man from Gibralter

who had a curvaceous young daughter.

Her body went in

where it should be thin

and out wherever it oughter.





There was a an old man called Savage

who suffered from piles in his passage.

So in surgery one day

they were soon cut away

which assisted the passage of gassage.

    Good fun limericks Michael. Like the picture as well.

  • Fay Slimm.

    Ah - just what my first read needed today Michael - Chuckling here at your clever fun-limericks and gasping in admiration at the fine watercolour.

    • Michael Edwards

      You can't beat a good giggle and gasp thanks so much Fay

      "Tide," the detergent to clean the "old sailor's hide?" Sorry, poor humor on my part. Funny limericks, I missed this morning, now reading them late at night. Still funny.
      Is that wharf on the river or the sea? Nice painting. - Phil A.

        Thanks Phil - it's on the canal system just on the edge of the town centre.
